Sign number 26 from the "Vienna - the city introduces itself" series of signs, an initiative established in 1956 as part of the Vienna Festival, which shows significant places in the city. The serial number is displayed at the bottom of the sign.
Above the sign are 4 flags of Austria, which is a hallmark of the project, and the possibility of recognizing it from a distance Click for a larger image

The sign is on the old Vienna City Hall, a building first erected in 1316. In the 18th century the façade of the building and several ceilings in the building itself were renovated by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Today the building still serves the Vienna Municipality as various offices.
